Cherry red in color, with a medium-high density, clear and brilliant. Good intensity on the nose, with outstanding notes of ripe red fruits. Aromas of vanilla and toast from the barrels, with a hint of minerality. The first attack on the palate is soft, with good volume and fruit, well balanced with the touch of oak for which our region is well-known. Good length, where the fruit dominates and through a long finish the aromas of fruit and the mineral notes from our soil reappear.
"From 15- to 45-year-old vines, the 2008 Finca La Emperatriz Crianza has a lifted, expressive bouquet of black plum, cassis, orange sorbet and small red cherries that demonstrate good intensity. The palate is very well-balanced, with firm tannins that exert a gentle but insistent grip. It builds nicely with crisp blackberry and raspberry intermixed with white pepper and sea salt. This segues into a solid, tannic finish that suggests this "masculine" Crianza would benefit another 12 months in bottle. This is very well-made. Drink 2013-2018."
